Indian head coach Rahul Dravid has admitted that Team India will no go through anymore chopping and changing for the third and decisive T20Is against Sri Lanka, on January 7 (Saturday).  Notably, Hardik Pandya-led side suffered 16-run defeat by Sri Lanka in a high-scoring second T20Is game on January 5 (Thursday), at MCA Stadium in Pune.

While speaking to the media after 2nd T20Is, head coach said that they are a young team and playing in such a pressure situation will only be good for the side.

“Players are doing really well. They just need to soak up pressure and go beyond that to extract results in favour. We are not eying any more chopping and changing for the third T20Is as we have a pretty balance side,” Dravid said.

He further suggested players to stay calm and composed in crunch situations. “For us, from the last game we played in the World Cup, only three to four boys played in that team. And we are at slightly different stage when we are looking at the next cycle of T20 cricket. So, to play a quality side like Sri Lanka is really good for us,” coach added.
